    GTA IV won't work with mods (WIN10)

    Windows 10 1803 has this issue, try updating to 1809 or downloading the directX redist and installing it. I know win10 already has it installed but this will repair anything it finds broken silently.
  5. Try AdvancedHook from ELS or LCPDFR manual install - one of those is the latest. The one included with Indicators IV is outdated.
  6. Use: And the skorpro undercover mod from the GTA gaming archive to make cars pull over.
  7. Disable fullscreen optimisation, disable all Windows 10 gaming stuff from the Settings app, and are you using an ENB and what mods are you using. Sorry you have to have this, its annoying as fuck. I never had it but ENBs only return a black screen for me.
  8. Hello everyone, So, as shown in the title, I am unable to get GTA 4 to launch after installing any ENB modification. Full details are below, including what I have tried and my system info. ---------------------------------------------------------- GAME CONFIGURATION: I downloaded the game from Steam legitimately, i.e. I did not pirate the game. It was installed with version Then, I downloaded the patch from the official rockstar download page. The installer ran successfully and the game was downgraded to (I checked by viewing the Details tab in the Properties of GTAIV.exe) I launched the game successfully and everything worked fine up to this point. I then quit the game and installed XLiveLess so I could load my saves, and I even installed ScriptHook and TrainerIV, and everything was working fine. My commandline can be found here (note - the official memrestrict values never fixed texture loss for me, even on a vanilla game) My stream.ini can be found here (its located in Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\bin) P.S. I downgraded the game properly with the paul.dll method which can be found here ---------------------------------------------------------- THE ISSUE IN DETAIL: I downloaded and installed EyeCandy ENB V6 and extracted everything except commandline.txt into my game folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV) Then, after checking that none of the files were blocked by Windows, I launched the game by running LaunchGTAIV.exe as administrator, not launching the game via steam. I click "Play" in the window that appears. Then, my mouse cursor shows the "Working" icon for a few seconds, then it stops. The game never launches, nothing happens. A quick check in Task Manager shows that when I click "Play" the GTAIV.exe process spawns but then crashes / kills itself instantly. All ENBs used to work properly and smoothly on previous versions of Windows 10 (1607). This issue started since Windows 10 version 1703. ---------------------------------------------------------- MY SYSTEM INFORMATION: PCPartPicker full component list Relavant PC Specs: i7 5820K @ 3.3Ghz 16GB DDR4 2133Mhz RAM 480GB SSD with 100GB free, where GTA IV is installed GTX 980Ti 2-way SLI (each has 4GB VRAM) My dxdiag.txt Desktop and GTA IV resolution: 3840x2160 @ 60Hz My windows version dialog My windows version: 1803, build 17134.137 ---------------------------------------------------------- WHAT I HAVE TRIED TO FIX THE ISSUE (all of which have had no effect): Buckle up, because this list will be very long... Restarting my computer (with Fast Boot disabled in control panel and using the ALT + F4 dialog on the desktop to restart, so all processes are properly killed) Running all of the installers that come with the game download (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\Installers) Using Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode to wipe graphics drivers, then reinstalling the latest graphics drivers Disabling SLI via Nvidia Control Panel With SLI enabled, settings SLI bits to 0x43500405 as per this post in Nvidia Inspector. Didn't make a difference in this case but gives a great performance boost to vanilla unmodded GTA IV. Adding d3dx9_26.dll and d3dx9_40.dll to my game folder as per this post Installing DirectX after running Display Driver Uninstaller and reinstalling graphics drivers. It did actually load some files and say that they were "now ready for use" as if it repaired something, instead of reporting that "The latest version is already installed" (or words to that effect) Setting the correct resolution in ENBSeries.ini as per this post Using a resolution of 1920x1080 for both my desktop and GTA IV Using a different ENB (on a clean install of GTA IV downgraded to - I've tried CryENB, ICEnhancer, Game4Video ENB, ProfeetENB, and the default ENBSeries for GTA 4. Using every OS option listed under "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" in the Compatibility tab of the Properties for GTAIV.exe, gta4Browser.exe, LaunchGTAIV.exe and gtaBrowser.exe. Setting GTAIV.exe, gta4Browser.exe, LaunchGTAIV.exe and gtaBrowser.exe to run as administrator in the Compatibility tab of the Properties for each .exe file Only setting GTAIV.exe to run as administrator Using the default values for stream.ini Using no commandline.txt file Using -memrestrict 681574400 in my commandline.txt and in my LaunchGTAIV.exe shortcut Adding my commandline options to a shortcut for LaunchGTAIV.exe set to run as administrator Using a pirated version of GTA 4 (I was desperate :P) Putting the game into a folder called Grand Theft Auto IV instead of a folder called GTAIV inside a folder called Grand Theft Auto IV (default setup) Disabling Full Screen Optimisations in the compatibility tab of GTAIV.exe's properties Removing all script mods and hooks Clean installing the game, downgrading to patch then retrying an ENB Disabling all gaming settings in the Settings app Uninstalling the Xbox app via Windows Powershell Disabling shader cache in Nvidia Control Panel Disabling VSync in Nvidia Control Panel Clamping negative LOD bias in Nvidia Control Panel Applying the 4GB patch to GTAIV.exe Applying Large Address Aware to GTAIV.exe (after applying the 4GB patch, as that patch creates a new .exe file) Completely quitting Steam before launching the game Disabling the Steam overlay for GTA 4 Disabling all overlays for GTA 4 (thats the Steam Overlay and Nvidia Shadowplay) Messing with all of the .ini files in the game folder. Using a different monitor Using my inbuilt graphics card WHAT I HAVE TRIED TO FIX THE ISSUE (all of which have had an effect on the issue): Not running LaunchGTAIV.exe as administrator (returned a SecuROM error, but did not solve the issue) Removing d3d9.dll from my game install folder. The game successfully launches, however everything is fully black, as the ENB relies on this file. ---------------------------------------------------------- I've tried pretty much everything I know. I hope I've listed everything, but I may have forgotten some obvious points (both in the "What I've tried" and the "My System Information" sections). I've been modding and playing the game for 5 years, and I know it inside out, but no response is "stupid". All help is widely appreciated. Thanks in advance. Here is what I think is causing the issue.

    [Solved] Extreme Texture Loss

    [Solved] Extreme Texture Loss

    I said "messing with it". Of course it's a stock callout. I have had outdated callouts in the past causing crashes with stock plugins.

    [Solved] Extreme Texture Loss

    Thanks so much :) Now I just have to deal with the "Pursuit of armed suspects" callout crashing the whole game. Probably an outdated callout plugin messing with it.

    [Solved] Extreme Texture Loss

    Completely fixed. Thank you so much. Game ran for 2 hours without a single texture missing. Method: Download and install Paint.NET Get the .ytd file of the vehicle you installed in OpenIV and open it with OpenIV Drag the livery somewhere and open it with Paint.NET (the livery usually has "sign_1" or "sign_2" etc. in the name) In Paint.NET, go to Image > Resize and type in 2048 as the width and the height. Don't worry about the other values. Save and close. The format is DXT5 In OpenIV, make sure edit mode is on. Open the same .ytd again, click import, and click on the livery you found. Click save. Quit and launch game.
  14. -SOLVED- Hey, for some reason I get heavy texture loss. Not sure why. The only game files I have replaced (i.e. not addons) are: LSPD Pack BCSO Pack Unmarked CVPI Unmarked Tahoe No peds or anything else was replaced. Video of the issue with graphics settings: PC Part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/6LN7d6 The issue doesn't happen as bad when I remove my mods folder. I run GTA 5 off an SSD with about 17% free (80 GB of 480 GB). I have plenty of RAM free in task manager. All my PC components are at normal temperatures (CPU = 40 Celsius, GPU = 75 Celsius). My PC is dust-free. GPU VRAM = 6144MB, usage = 5800 or something MB. I have updated my GPU drivers. My SLI bridge is properly seated. SLI is on. All help is widely appreciated.

    LSPD Pack [ELS]

    I will never be able to get over the beauty of this pack. Love it, the effort is so clear. The interiors, lighting, vehicle, so beautiful. Thank you so much I really appreciate this. So glad I decided to refresh my vehicles. 11/10
